a moment on the lips

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Now, I may love raya but my hips on the other hand, have other ideas come this time of the year.

No matter how much cardio/weight/resistance training I do to combat the dreaded flabs - my hips insist on giving Bibendum (yes, the Michelin tyre mascot has a name!) a run for his money. But let's be honest here, I've probably only visited the gym twice in the past month in the midst of work, travel, events and open houses!

On the other hand, house visiting is the best time to catch up with friends and acquaintances you haven't met in awhile. It's like hitting 2 birds with one stone. Or 23 friends. Or 4297 family members.

I always anticipate seeing what everyone turns up in. It's like a fashion runway with all the pretty colorful chiffons, beads and patterns floating amidst the food and chatter. Exhibit A:

You might recognize celeb blogger Proudduck (her musings are simply hilarious, I love reading them!), who's married to one of my closest friend's brother. In KL, 2 degrees of separation is the new 6. Everyone is somehow directly connected, so be careful what you doooo ;)

On to Exhibit B: Always wear those big spacious kaftans. They're comfy enough to fit in as much rendang into your bellies yet stylish enough to pull off that effortless cool look.

And if you're lucky, you'll stumble upon the king of fruits at one of the houses and insist on taking group shots like these:
